  • Ivica Zubac
    C, Los Angeles Clippers

    Ivica Zubac had a solid performance on Sunday with 10 points and eight boards on 3-of-4 shooting in 20 minutes.

    Zubac is going to be the starting center this season as the Clippers will bring Montrezl Harrell off the bench again. He added one steal and two blocks to the stat sheet. He should be drafted in the later rounds this season as he could provide value in efficiency, rebounding and blocks.

  • Jerome Robinson
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Jerome Robinson played 32 minutes in a win over Melbourne United on Sunday and scored 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting.

    He will likely not have this big of a role in the regular season, but it was nice to see him show some flashes of offense in this game. He added five rebounds, three assists and two triples to the box score. He can be left on draft boards to start the season as he likely does not have a spot in the Clippers' rotation.

  • Lou Williams
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams scored 16 points with seven dimes on 4-of-12 shooting in a win over Melbourne United on Sunday.

    Williams has reliably been one of the best scoring options off the bench in the entire NBA for the past few seasons, and he should maintain that role for the 2019-20 season. He added four rebounds and one steal to the box score. He will likely be a top-100 player, so he can be picked in the late-middle rounds.

  • Montrezl Harrell
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Montrezl Harrell put up 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting in a 118-100 win over Melbourne United on Sunday.

    He added six rebounds and four assists to the stat sheet and shot 6-of-9 form the free-throw line. He also got one steal and one block. Harrell has top-65 potential, so he should be drafted in the middle rounds comfortably.

  • Patrick Beverley
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Patrick Beverley tweaked his calf in Sunday's preseason win, scoring 11 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 20 minutes before exiting.

    No word on the severity of Beverley's injury just yet but calf issues can linger, so we would expect him to get a couple days off in advance of the regular season. Any missed time would create more playing time for Landry Shamet and Terance Mann, which is something to keep in mind in deeper drafts.

  • Landry Shamet
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet picked up a wrist injury in Sunday's win over Melbourne United.

    Shamet scored seven points in 18 minutes before exiting and downplayed the injury after the game, so hopefully it's not serious. He remains a quality target in the last couple rounds of 12-team drafts.

    Amir Coffey injured his calf/ankle in Sunday's exhibition win and left the locker room in a walking boot.

    Coffey is on a two-way contract with the Clippers so this injury won't have an effect on the fantasy landscape. Expect an update on his condition in the coming days. Coffey had two points in 15 minutes before getting hurt.

  • Maurice Harkless

    Doc Rivers said that he's considering starting Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams in certain matchups and that the fifth starter in those cases would be a "pick 'em" situation.

    The main candidates in that configuration, when both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are playing, are Patrick Beverley or Landry Shamet at point guard or Moe Harkless at power forward. The Clippers, when healthy, have assembled one of the most versatile teams in the league so it wouldn't be surprising if Rivers leveraged that to get the most out of his team on any given night.

  • Terance Mann
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Terance Mann (rest) will not play in Sunday's exhibition game against Melbourne United.

    Usually rookies don't get days off in the preseason, so this probably speaks to Mann's impressive work since being drafted. He's handled backup point guard work at times and looks like he could be in the rotation on opening night. He's a name to know in 20-team formats, though he's still more of a watch list player until you get into the very deepest of leagues.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard (rest) will not suit up for Sunday's preseason tilt with Melbourne.

    Leonard wasn't expected to play, and here's your confirmation. Feel free to pick over the Clippers' bench in DFS on what could be a reserve-heavy day.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Ckippers head coach Doc Rivers doesn't expect Kawhi Leonard (rest) to play Sunday's preseaosn game against Melbourne.

    The on again, off again resting schedule with Kawhi during the preseason is not much of a surprise. Leonard has said all of the right things about his committment to playing more and resting less this season, but until we see it it's hard to take those comments at face value. One encouraging spot for those considering Leonard in the first round is the news that Paul George (shoulder) will be sidelined for the first 10 games of the season, increasing the need for Leonard to be out there with his new team.

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers are preparing to be without Paul George (right rotator cuff and left labrum tear) for at least the first 10 games of the season.

    If he only misses 10 games that would put George in line to return on November 13 versus the Rockets. This seems to be the best case scenario and Moe Harkless and JaMychal Green figure to absorb most of George's minutes while he is out.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard made his preseason debut on Thursday with seven points, one rebound, six assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    The low minutes aren't a surprise and the high assist numbers are nice as the Clippers lack playmakers, but we're not going to read too deep into preseason numbers. The Clippers are going to ease Leonard into the season and there's still a big question mark as to how many "load management" days he'll have coming into the year.

  • Montrezl Harrell
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers in scoring with 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist and two steals.

    Harrell took tonight's matchup against Nikola Jokic personally which is in line with his personality. You can expect his high energy and dog personality to show up every night for the Clippers and even though they're a much deeper team this year, Harrell should still be able to provide solid fantasy stats alongside Lou Williams (13 points, one triple, three rebounds, three assists and a steal).

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard will in fact make his preseason debut on Thursday after it was reported he would rest.

    The Clippers couldn't seem to decide when Leonard was going to make his debut, but it appears we'll get our first look at him on this new team. It doesn't have much bearing on the season, since we know what Leonard is, but it'll be exciting to see him suit up.
